Music and Emotions - Hearing Aids Help to Not Miss a Beat

There is a fair amount of research demonstrating that people from vastly different cultures and geographical locations respond to music - even unfamiliar one - on an emotional level.

Studies carried out among members of the Mafa tribe in an isolated area of Cameroon, showed that these people, far removed from Western civilization, responded to Western music with happiness, sadness or fear, depending on the pitch or rhythm of the music.

Scientists say this proves that humans react to music with the same gamut of emotions, regardless of their culture.

Other evidence suggests that music is also beneficial to our physical and emotional well-being.

These findings are especially pertinent to people with untreated hearing loss, who can't reap the benefits of listening to their favorite music. Wearing hearing aids, however, will not only enable a person with hearing loss to enjoy the sounds of music, but also have a better communication and interaction with family, friends, and co-workers.
